Most computer users today are already familiar with the concept of performance and resource monitoring with new tools set in new operating systems. Since servers also utilize similar components installed in regular, home computers, many server owners think if it is possible to monitor their resources and overall performance. This question is answered with a big ‘YES’ with the birth of Resource Monitor.


The need to monitor server performance


Server performance is imperative for running a hosting business or a website. A downtime or inconsistency may affect other users or make a website inaccessible for businesses. This will place the whole business operation to a halt and result to unsatisfied clients aside from lost income. By knowing what is happening in the server during its operation, the website owner or host provider will know the next course of action to do in preventing future problems.


However, you cannot monitor your server at all times. Moreover, you will not know its operation unless you have a good program that monitors servers accurately. Good thing Resource Monitor is now here to do this job.
